Condo of the week: 993 Queen Street West

Most of the condos at the Candy Factory Lofts are beautiful to look at, but the penthouse units are some of the nicest living spaces in the city. This particular one was designed by Johnson Chou, who's done a deft job blending the heritage elements of the building with contemporary decor.

Why can't we all have places as nice as this one?
